Craft beer (and food!) in the city this weekend:

    Recommended Posts

    I can think of a lot worse ways to spend a weekend!

     

    I don't drink too much beer (anymore!) but loved my visits to breweries when I went to Tassie.

    At the Hobart food and wine expo I tried a few local brews and was impressed. They maybe did start to taste better after a few though! :smile:

     

    Anyone going to this?
